What’s New in Accordance Mobile 2.7 for iOS

 

 

Accordance Mobile 2.7 for iOS is a major update bringing a wealth of new features and improvements.

  • Support for syncing and viewing Papers. Take your Papers documents from Accordance 12 with you for reading or presentation on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Improved User Notes. Now you can tap a User Note icon next to the text to view or edit it. An improved User Note edit interface allows you to view the verse for which a note is being added.
  • Improved audio features. The interface for playing Accordance audio-based titles has been improved. We have also added support for background play and control via the lock screen Control Center.
  • Improved Hebrew word selection for Instant Details. Now it is much easier to distinguish between a word, its prefix, or its suffix when accessing information from Instant Details.
  • New Amplify Preferences. A new Amplify section in Preferences allows you to set default resources for English, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin dictionaries or lexicons. Set a default commentary for amplifying from verse references.
  • New Lexeme option in Instant Details for Keyed Texts. In translations with Strong’s or GK Numbers, you can now bypass the default Hebrew or Greek dictionary in Instant Details and go straight to the Hebrew or Greek lexicon specified in your Amplify Preferences.
  • Plus, new Interlinear settings, improved Handoff support, secondary pane page turning, and much more.

UPDATE! Accordance Mobile for Android v. 1.1

When we released Accordance Mobile for Android v. 1.0 back in February, we knew it didn’t yet have all the regular features Accordance users have come to expect, but we didn’t want to delay it even one more day. At that time we promised that certain features would be added soon in an upcoming update. Well, today is the day we are releasing Accordance Mobile for Android v. 1.1 in the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore for Android with the essential features we’ve all been waiting for!

AM Android 1.1 Samsung NA28 ICC Andy

There are three main new features in Accordance Mobile for Android v. 1.1. First up, Instant Details. Tap and hold a word in any Keyed or Tagged text to get more information about that word and how it’s used. Second, Hypertext links. Now there are visual indicators hyperlinks to Scripture references, footnotes, and more. Tapping on these links will either show you more information or take you to further information. Third, Picture thumbnails. Tapping on images will take you to an internal or Android picture viewer.

There are also quite a few other changes, so you’ll want to check out the complete list in the Android section of the Accordance Forums. And just know that when it comes to Android, we’re just getting started! We have lots of upcoming features in the pipeline for our Android version of Accordance that we can’t wait to show you in the days and weeks to come.

Major Update! Accordance Mobile for iOS 2.6

Page Turning - AM 2.6 Accordance updates keep on coming! Yesterday, we released Accordance 12.2 for Windows & Mac; and today, we’re excited to announce the release of Accordance Mobile for iOS v. 2.6. Version numbers by themselves don’t mean much, but let me say up front that this is one of our biggest updates ever for Accordance Mobile!

Just in time for the holiday season, Accordance Mobile 2.6 is here with an incredible number of user-requested features and updates!

Page Turning

You asked for it, and here it is! If you prefer to turn pages instead of scrolling, now you can! In any title, click on the Quick Settings icon and flip the switch on Page Turning. Or if you know Page Turning is for you, go into the universal settings for Texts and Tools and turn it on for everything.

Page Turning Settings Am 2.6

Handoff Support

Have you ever been working on one device and wish you were on a different one? Now you can start on your iPhone and finish on your iPad or the other way around. Initial support for Handoff between Macs and iOS devices has been implemented with continued improvements on the way.

For more information about Handoff, see Apple’s support page.

iPhone X Support

You may have already noticed that most of the images on this page are iPhone X screenshots. Accordance for iOS 2.6 takes advantage of the iPhone X’s full screen size, including adjusting for the iPhone X’s camera array.

User Note Updates

For the past few releases, we’ve had to issue warnings about editing Notes files in Accordance Mobile for iOS that were originally created on Windows or Macintosh computers if the notes contained images. Fortunately, with the release of Accordance Mobile for iOS v. 2.6, you can edit Notes files that contain images without worry. Also, URLs are now supported in User Notes, too.

Report a Correction

Find a mistake? Sending in corrections has been easy if you were running the Mac or Windows versions of Accordance, but not so simple in Accordance Mobile. Now, if you find a mistake, simply select the content in question and report it from the Action Bar within the app.

Report a Correction AM iOS 2.6

Improved sharing

Version 2.6 delivers massive sharing improvements via the iOS share sheet, including support for new accordance.bible universal links. Share a verse, quotation or profound thought in social media or separate notetaking software with an accompanying link to the source in Accordance.

Twitter Share from AM 2.6 iOS

And a whole lot more

Accordance for iOS 2.6 includes many other improvements including Startup Session crash check, better syncing, updated support for accord:// links--including support for missing linked modules—and much more!


One more thing!

Accordance Mobile for Android: Open Beta!

Accordance Mobile for Android Over the past year or so, nearly every day I've responded to Accordance users on our forums, our various social media venues or in private messages and conversations asking me when our long-promised Android version of Accordance Mobile will be ready. While our Android version has taken longer than we had hoped, along the way, many have asked if we could even release just a reader for Android so that Accordance users could have access to their Accordance Library on their favorite non-Apple mobile phones and tablets.

Of course, we’re not satisfied simply to release a reader for Android; but rather than ask our users to wait even one day longer, we have now released our Accordance Mobile Android Open Beta! Although this release of Accordance Mobile for Android is an early beta release, it is definitely more than just a reader. As described in the Accordance User Forums yesterday, this 1.0 beta release comes with the following Major features:

  • Display of Texts
  • Searching of Texts
  • Grammatical and Key Number searching of Texts
  • Split Panes for Texts, showing a Text or Reference Tool
  • Display of Tools
  • Searching of Tools
  • Easy Install
  • Library Access to files
  • Text and Tool Display choices
  • Goto interface, via a grid or list
CSB-ACCS-Tab S3

Of course, not everything is in place yet. In version 1.1 of the beta, we plan to add the following features:

  • Selection of text
  • Hyperlinks
  • Pictures
  • Instant Details
  • User Notes
  • Amplification

Now, you’re free to hold out for the final, non-beta release of Accordance Mobile for Android, which will be available sometime in 2018; but if you don’t want to wait any longer, we’d love to have you help us out! Go to Joel Brown’s forum post from yesterday, “Welcome to the Android Open Beta!” to download the current build. New builds will be posted in the Android Open Beta forum, so check back often.

BHS-KD-Amazon Fire

Just remember that this is beta software. That means not everything will work yet, there will be bugs, and there will be crashes. But you can help us speed development along by posting any issues you encounter in our Android Open Beta forum as well as any suggestions and constructive criticism.

Mac, iOS, Windows, and Android. Now you can truly take Accordance with you wherever you want to go!
